Your planned giving gift to Great Old Broads for Wilderness helps build a steady foundation, as we stand firm in our advocacy of wild public lands and waters. You may also save on estate taxes and be able to leave more to your heirs. Ask your Financial Advisor about these options:
• Bequests – A bequest is one of the simplest ways to make an enduring impact. Include us in your will or trust with a gift of cash, property, or a portion of the estate
• IRA/Retirement Plans – A retirement plan or IRA is another way to give to Broads. These assets often carry an income tax burden if paid to a beneficiary, but not if paid to a tax-exempt organization.
• Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds – Avoid capital gains taxes. Since Great Old Broads is a tax-exempt organization, we can liquidate investments with no tax liability. Even if the stocks have appreciated greatly, you can claim a charitable deduction for the full market value on the date of transfer and thus reduce your income tax liability. Consult your tax advisor for more information.
Other planned giving options
Real Estate Gifts • Life Insurance Policies • Pooled Income Funds
Charitable Gift Annuities • Charitable Remainder Unitrusts
Be sure to consult your personal tax and financial advisors about these options.
